Institute of Carpenters exam success17 March 2009
Last year 274 students took the Institute of Carpenters (IoC) examinations. The pass rate for the Foundation exam was nearly 70%, for the Intermediate it was 75%, and for the Advanced Craft examination 95%.
Institute of Carpenters director Duncan King said offered a range of NVQ qualifications, covering introductory basics through to training people for the profession of their choice. In addition, the IoC offered enhanced craft-based training and the IoC qualifications provide education and skills above and beyond NVQ – the Intermediate qualification builds on NVQ level 2, and the Advanced qualification further develops the craft from NVQ 3.
Awards were made for excellent performance in the examinations. They were: Foundation exam: Michael Porter, Acton & West London College, who received an endorsed certificate; Intermediate exam: Neil Andrew Crowell, Highlands College, who received £50 and an endorsed certificate; Advanced Craft exam: William Howell Davies, Thames Valley University, who achieved the highest overall theory and practical marks. He was presented with £50, an endorsed certificate and medal, and the Advanced Craft Examination Shield.
